If You Were Born Today, December 12: IF ITS YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY, your horoscope tells that your year ahead will be focussed, more self-sufficient than usual, go ahead especially where money is concerned and a time of beneficial changes both emotionally and materially. Cash will come your way with less effort than usual and you’ll open up to intimacy in one close relationship. Try not to be too standoffish or controlling. There will be some upheavals or disruptions at one so you’ll need to stay flexible. Your horizons will broaden next year.
|ARIES:If you are feeling pulled in two directions, maybe you need to revise your plans and ambitions. You need to be focussed and clear that what you are doing has you exclusive attention. You have rather startling ideas that could be slightly ahead of their time. They certainly seem to be running against the traditional or conventional ways of doing things. You will probably be proved right in the long run, but try to be understanding of the slower pace of certain companions.
|TAURUS: Rise above the trivia of daily living and take the bird’s eye view of your life. Getting far enough away to see everything in perspective can be enormously helpful. You can make better decisions and become less obsessed by what may not be hugely important. Maybe you are avoiding confronting difficulties in relationships or the less pleasant realities of life. Sometimes you have to shine light on hidden places, or face the bottom line. Only then do the answers begin to come.|
|GEMINI:The New Moon in the deepest part of your chart could pass you by without any noticeable effect. But if you can give yourself space to ponder, you may be able to answer one or two questions that have been bothering you recently. Nothing superficial will help. You need to get right down to the nitty gritty. You are thinking a good deal about how to join hands with like-minded people, perhaps to improve society. What is certain is that your outlook is changing dramatically.|
|CANCER: Maybe you will feel more dependent than usual, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. You have to make sure that close partners understand it is each for each. It cannot all be one way otherwise resentment will build up. Maximum freedom with minimum interference is your watchword at work just now. Trouble is you have to persuade those higher up it should be their policy as well. Networking is more your style than team playing, since you want to have your corner to yourself.|
|LEO: The New Moon in your chart area of health and work comes round once a year to nudge you into getting more practical about your body and daily schedule. Find ways of boosting your stamina and try not to waste energy going the long way round. You may startle others with your direct conversations, always getting right to the point without worrying about anyone else’s reactions. You can at times be too frank and even self-righteous when you get obsessed with your opinions.|
|VIRGO: Whether you are around loved ones, children or social mates, you will want rounds of applause, compliments galore and appreciative attention. It’s not a time to skulk in the corner. Be boisterous and exuberant and make sure you get centre spotlight. You do want to breathe more inspiration into your intimate emotional life, so you need to start thinking along new lines. You want deeper meaning, a different sense of purpose, to go beyond ordinary living and find something different.|
|LIBRA: Putting down roots and finding a sense of belonging is especially important with the new Moon at the lowest part of your chart. You want to be surrounded by everything that feels comforting and reassuring. New relationships could be switch-on, switch off, but also exciting. At work, it’s important to try new ways of cooperating. There’s a feeling of change in the air, but if you can find the courage to go with it you’ll find more interest, stimulation and potential in the days ahead.|
|SCORPIO: Getting your feet on the ground, and paying attention to detail may not sound like a laugh a minute. If you ignore what’s under your feet, you won’t be able to tackle more expansive, fun projects in future. Alternative life styles and ways to make a living interest you. Settling into a secure, traditional working environment doesn’t sit well with your restless spirit. You need a space where you have the freedom to work as you like without too much direct supervision.|
|SAGITTARIUS: You will be feeling more intense, perhaps slightly stubborn, over cash or other matters. Mull everything over carefully, and once you have reached a considered decision, you can take steps to resolve whatever is bothering you. Just don’t expect instant results. You will be outspoken, slightly dramatic, very impressive but not everyone around will be enchanted with your rather blunt comments. However some things need to be said whether they make you popular or not. Try to tone down the more extreme ones.|
|CAPRICORN: Getting your head and your heart together will be important today. What you want to do and ought to do have to be the same thing, so you can put your wholehearted enthusiasm behind your plans which will work better as a result. Make sure you have supportive companions around who are willing to follow your lead. Maybe you feel you’re losing certain aspects of an old emotional way of life, but think positively. What will replace it could be sparkling, stimulating and more alive.|
|AQUARIUS: Nothing will be gained by racing around at high speed today, especially when your energy and motivation are low. There will be more benefit to finding quality time for yourself. Ponder, prepare, plan and understand. Companions may be needing help, but you need to put down limits as well. You do seem to be having more contacts with a good many people in your everyday life which challenges you and tests your patience. Try to pause for breath and thought along the way.|
|PISCES: If you have been feeling lethargic or hopeless about making any difference to the society in which you live, now is the time to give yourself a shake. Join hands with likeminded friends. Together you can achieve more than you imagine. It just requires focus and persistence. You’ll be more inclined than usual to act impulsively where cash is concerned and disregard advice. On the other hand, you could find that bright inspirations lead you new ways of making money. Try to control your more reckless ideas.|
